Not forgetting that at all. Culpability for the bailout fiasco crosses party lines. And continues now as Obama is taking advice from the likes of Summer and Geithner who are very much at fault for what happened leading up. But every "report" I've heard on Fox suggests--rather strongly--that it is Obama and the Dems who are leading the country into Socialism, which is disingenuous at best considering the piles of taxpayer money Bush championed to bail out the very institutions that failed the country and made a very few rich at the expense of many.

It was nevertheless Bush's idea to bail out failed and criminal institutions like AIG and it was under his administration's watch that the FBI--which warned in 2004 that massive bank fraud was occurring at the nation's largest bank and mortgage firms and would cripple the economy if not stopped--was taken off investigation of such crimes (for terror-related activities, which is understandable) but never replaced, and so, yes, it IS fair to blame Bush and his "hands-off, let the market work it out" cronies for letting this crisis occur.
